Mama Moves

A video and some writing I made this morning 🙂

I have other things to do,
“Important things,”
But the music it pulls me in
Like a river….

I have to move.
I must.

I feel something in my hydrated heart
That needs to move through me.
A love,
A gratitude,
A fullness.

And inside my belly,
A babe is growing and
Moving with me.

A babe is listening to
The music,
Turning and rolling,
Exploring the vast ocean of
My womb.

So I move because I must,
Because there is no other way.
And I sing because my heart
Sings within me,
Because there is sound that
Moves as another limb of this movement
Through my body,
Through my whole body.

How else can it be?
In this moment as it
unfolds its way
Through me.
